An economic and legal perspective on electric utility transition costs by Kenneth Rose( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The issue of possibly unrecoverable cost incurred by a utility, or 'stranded costs, ' has emerged as a major obstacle to developing a competitive generation market. Stranded or transition costs are defined as costs incurred by a utility to serve its customers that were being recovered in rates but are no longer due to availability of lower-priced alternative suppliers. The idea of 'stranded cost, ' and more importantly arguments for its recovery, is a concept with little basis in economic theory, legal precedence, or precedence in other deregulated industries. The main argument recovery is that the ''regulatory compact'' requires it. This is based on the misconception that the regulator compact is simply: the utility incurs costs on behalf of its customers because of the ''obligation to serve'' so, therefore, customers are obligated to pay. This is a mischaracterization of what the compact was and how it developed. Another argument is that recovery is required for economic efficiency. This presumes, however, a very narrow definition of efficiency based on preventing ''uneconomic'' bypass of the utility and that utilities minimize costs. A broader definition of efficiency and the likelihood of cost inefficiencies in the industry suggest that the cost imposed on customers from inhibiting competition could exceed the gains from preventing uneconomic bypass. Both these issues are examined in this paper

Pricing local distribution services in a competitive market by Daniel J Duann( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unbundling and restructuring of local distribution services is the focus of the natural gas industry. As a result of regulatory reforms, a competitive local distribution market has emerged, and the validity of traditional cost-based regulation is being questioned. One alternative is to completely unbundle local distribution services and transform the local distribution company into a common carrier for intrastate transportation services. Three kinds of alternative pricing mechanisms are examined. For firm intrastate transportation services, cost-based pricing is the preferred method unless it can be shown that a competitive secondary market can be established and maintained. Pricing interruptible transportation capacity is discussed
